"This research project was undertaken to determine the possibility of using an induction log of the type applied in petroleum exploration, for the detection of conductive ore- bodies asymmetrically located with respect to a borehole. Since a mathematical analysis would be extremely complex, a model study was conducted, using graphite bodies of various shapes to simulate different modes of mineral occurence.
The investigation showed that these bodies were readily detectable, and were capable of yielding anomalous curves characteristic of their geometry. The values of apparent conductivity decreased rapidly with lateral displacement, from the logging tool, as expected, due to the resistive air medium"--Abstract, page ii.
